Ok...so this may be a dumb question, but I just don't get it. Should I be using the same keywords on all my pages or keywords to match specific what is on the page?

It depends on what is on your page. For example, if your website, in general, sells handmade origami flowers, your keywords for your general web page should be "general" to everything you sell. If you think about it, what kind of search would you do to come up with your website? What style, and how do you think of your products? Those keywords are what you should be using for your general site page. You could do, for example, "retro felt flowers" "handmade felted gifts" "unique felted flowers" "handmade one of a kind crafts" etc.. but on a specific page with, lets say, a bouquet of red felted flowers, you could use the same keywords you used for your intro page, but also definately use keywords specific to your item. "red felted flowers" "felted bouquets" "felted red" etc. etc..

Also, it's better to use the keywords that will actually show up in the text of the page.  If you just put down a huge list of keywords and they do not show up in the text, it will work against you.  It's called "Keyword Stacking" and search engines don't like it.

Check out the site: www.statcounter.com it's a counter that can be hidden and it will tell you the keywords that are searched to get to your site.

I LOVE statcounter and I use it for all of my projects!

Thanks, that was kind of what I was thinking but I wanted to make sure. I had no idea about "keyword stacking", I know I need to rewrite everything (coz I'm not using keywords in my text)  guess I should stop putting it off...

Each page has a different keyphase.
Each page had different meta tags etc etc.

Research the keyphase so you know real people are actually searching for it. (It's no good showing up at NO 1 for "orange beaded slippers" (example lol) when no one ever searches for that.

Find a smaller, niche phrase, it's unlikely you will show up in the top of 1,000,000 results! Where as 12,000 you have a better chance.
